2008 Dodge RAM 2500 Overview

This heavy-duty three-quarter ton pickup, with best-in-class towing and acceleration, adds a new trim and some extra features this year. The SXT joins the lineup of the 2008 Dodge Ram Pickup 2500, falling in between the base ST and SLT. It upgrades from the work-truck like air conditioning and CD player of the ST to power features, remote entry, and a chrome bumper. The SLT features cruise control and a trip computer, while the Laramie offers power leather seats, power pedals, and a 6-CD player. For 2008, the Laramie gets wood accents. A Power Wagon is aimed at off-road performance, with skid plates, all-terrain tires, electronic front and rear locking differential and sway bar, and a 12,000-pound winch.

Other additions include a standard tire monitor, larger 7 X 10-inch trailer mirrors, and an electronic shift transfer case for both the SLT and Laramie 4X4s.

There are three cab styles for the 2008 Dodge Ram Pickup 2500. Regular cabs seat two in one row and come only with an 8-foot pickup bed, and is offered for all trims but the Laramie. The Quad is available across the line and seats four in two rows, with a choice of 8-foot or 6.3-foot bed. The Mega Cab focuses on passenger comfort, seating six in two rows, with reclining rear seats and 44 inches of legroom. The drawback is that it's only offered with the shorter bed and only in SLT and Laramie trims.

Standard engine remains the 345-hp 5.7-liter, Hemi V8 with choice of 6-speed manual or 5-speed automatic. It excels in towing capability, topping 13,000 pounds. An optional 352-hp, 6.7-liter Cummins turbodiesel makes the 2500 the only heavy-duty pickup to meet 2010 federal low emissions standards. It is paired with a 6-speed automatic and has a towing capacity of 15,600 pounds. All trims are available in either rear-wheel or all-wheel drive. Owners love the towing power, durability, and smooth transmission of the 2008 Dodge Ram Pickup 2500. Interior comfort is also praised, though the step-in height can be tricky. Poor fuel economy is the most notable complaint, with some mention of a bumpy ride and a tendency for rear-wheel skidding.
